5 Ways to Dye Hair Naturally. Just Pick your Colour.

Dying hair whether at home or at salons, will definitely damage your hair. But doing it naturally will not cause any damage. You just pick the colour you want and give it a try 🙂 I want you all to know that I don’t promise, it will work effectively on everyone in just one go. You will have to try them at least 2 times to get the intense colour.

 I haven’t tried any of them yet. I would love to but I don’t get time these days 🙁 

Before trying out these hair dyes, make sure your hair is clean and without any products. If you are not feeling comfortable with the outcomes then test a small strand of your hair with these dyes.

1st Hair Dye:
Henna (Mehndi)
Check the colour chart HERE.

Henna is PERFECT if you want your hair to be glossy, thick and long. DO NOT use henna dye that has chemicals in it and which is black in colour. You will find Henna in any Indian stores. Ask the shopkeeper if it is natural before buying it. Also buy the powder form of henna. If you are scared of the results, then test it on a small strand of hair and time it to check how long you should leave it for your hair colour choice. This will work only in 1 go.

Directions: Mix the powder henna with yogurt until its a yogurt like consistency. Let it sit overnight. Then in the morning put on plastic gloves and separate your hair in few parts depending on the volume of your hair. But averagely separate top + bottom head. Clip away the top part and apply the henna mixture in the bottom part. Do the same with the top. If you get henna on forehead, wipe it off because it will stain your skin. The stain goes away in a day or two. When you have got the henna applied, wrap your head with a piece of cloth that covers all your hair. It won’t stain your bath tub so don’t worry about that. If you are trying it for the first time then leave it on for only an hour and rinse it all out. Later if you want more intense colour then try it again and leave it on for longer. Wash your hair with a shampoo made for colour treated hair.

2nd Hair Dye:

Honey bleaches your hair naturally so it is perfect if you want a lighter shade than your natural colour. Mix honey and yoghurt together to make it non-sticky. Take enough yoghurt to make honey non-sticky and take honey depending on your hair length. Apply it and leave it on for at least 2 hours. It won’t work in 1 go, you have to do this for at least 3-4 times. Do this only once a week.

3rd Hair Dye:
Black Tea

Black Tea gives your hair a darker shade than your natural hair colour. Brew 2 cups of strong tea. When its warm enough rinse with it. Take out the excess tea water and leave the rest on for 3-4 hours and then rinse your hair gently with pure water. Do this 3-4 times and you should notice the colour change.

4th Hair Dye:

Coffee gives you red and brown highlights in dark hair. Prepare 2 cups of strong coffee as you would to drink. Wash your hair with a good shampoo and then put this mixture in a small tub. Put the tub in your bath tub and dip your hair in it. Rinse your hair over and over again with the mixture from the tub with a glass or some container. Work the coffee thoroughly. Take the excess coffee mixture out and leave the rest in hair for 3-4 hours and then rinse with plain water. You should notice a few highlights after doing this 3-4 times.

5th Hair Dye:
Rhubarb Root

Visit your local health store to get an access to buy Rhubarb Root. This plant lightens your hair from honey brown to blonde or light brown. It lightens any hair colour, a shade or two. Simmer the root in 4 cups of water in a glass or non metal pot for about an hour. Let it cool down and then strain it through a sieve. Put the mixture in a small tub and use this mixture to rinse your hair after washing it with a shampoo. Pour the mixture on your hair over and over again to get the colour. Rinse hair with 2 cups of pure water to get the mixture out and leave your hair to dry in sun so the colour comes out better.
